this is a moment for jim lehrerer to be very tough, respectful tough, and for president obama to come back at him and to say, look, i'm happy to see -- your running mate said he didn't have enough time on sunday. that's too bad. that's terrible, in fact. i'm willing to cede, governor romney -- >> could jim lehrer get away with simply saying i have a little liberty here, a little leeway, i will give you all the time it takes. tell us now what tax breaks you're going to get rid of. >> tell us what tax breaks you're going goat rid of and also please, governor romney, you were very upset about the 47% of americans who pay no taxes. well, they include seniors, the military, and they include the working poor. please tell me, governor romney, exactly which groups you're going to raise federal incomes taxes on of those three groups because you don't like the fact they're not paying taxes. he's a very wonderful man, a warm man, he could be tough but respectful and i think president obama should help him out by saying i'm happy to cede some of my time so you can take the time and lay out all those deductio

it done. i think that's very fair, i think it's a question that will be asked of him tomorrow by jim lehrer. >> it's also been deemed as mathematically impossible. thank you. as the candidates gear up, we are headed to denver. we will broadcast live from the university of denver, so be sure to tune in tomorrow, 4:00 p.m. eastern. >>> next, the 47 and bain. sure to take center stage tomorrow. stay with us. >> you haven't given me the math. >> but, well, i don't have the time -- it would take me too lock to go through all the math. >> great answer. why? it's a great answer. why is it a great answer? well, it would take me too long to explain, but trust me, it was a great answer.

, for our cbs news coverage of the first presidential debate out in denver, moderated by my friend jim lehrer, and we'll see you here on "face the nation" next week. ,,,,,,,,,,
believe i can. i talked about the principles -- megyn: there is jim lehrer who will be moderating tonight. >> it wasn't just vice presidential goarms team that thought oh won. there is a report that george stephanopoulos thought he won. he apparently declared the nine debates, 8 had been won by the democrats. later on these things harden. that'sy think the afterdebate is as important as the debate itself. what gets picked up and what gets focused on. my former colleague suggested the gaffe measure. has a gaffe come out. one of the tests will be, does the opposite side cite something the other candidate said in a debate in the an ad to make fun of it. megyn: romney is not a guy who makes a lot of fun of himself speak of making fun. and he's not a guy who has shown a lot of aptitude in connecting with the average joe at home. it seems like the folks who like him like him despite the fact they don't necessarily feel warm and fuzzy about him the way they would a ronald reagan. does he need to change that tonight, bill? >> i think he needs to tell people what he stands for. i think he spent th
think? >> well, it's hard to imagine that somebody, either jim lehrer or the president himself, won't bring up the 47% video because it has been devastating to romney. obama has used it in ads and it plays into the perception of romney as a very rich guy who is completely out of touch with ordinary voters. however, i can't imagine that romney hasn't are practiced responses to that. he's already had an ad where he sits down, faces the camera, he tries to assure voters that he wants to help 100% of americans, everybody. but the danger for romney is seeming fake or false when he tries to connect. he has, no doubt, practiced a lot, rehearsed a lot. he has a lot of answers already planned but can he seem genuine when he's given that answer -- those answers as something to watch out for? >> now, erin, the 47%, according to all polling, has really crushed romney. the latest poll shows 45% of americans said it gave them a more negative view of romney. now the polls show 55% had a negative reaction. so he has to deal with it if it comes up and it's likely to come up. you heard cynthia say th
the candidate to call on that? >> steve: i think it depends on the moderator. let's see how jim lehrer does. a poll out this morning, you can see among, i believe registered vote, the president within the margin of error. so it's absolutely pretty much tied. >> brian: that's just one poll. >> steve: national journal has them tied at 47%. what's interesting about the "wall street journal" thing is that apparently, according to the polling and the morning paper, a majority of americans now would like to see one party rule in washington, d.c., where one party controls the white house and both houses of congress as well. >> brian: isn't that why we broke from the king of england, so we could have some type of discussion? >> martha: it tells something about how people feel about the divisionsiveness in washington. let's give it a shot. maybe if we have the same party control in both branches and in the president, maybe we'll get somewhere. it's a sad commentary on people's ability to work together. >> brian: in florida, the polls are tightening up and in virginia, thereabout within two points of
of the things that mitt romney has to be prepared for, is jim lehrer asking him the question of whether he endorses todd akin in missouri because if he endorses akin he's damned. if he doesn't, he's damned. >> i would say it all depends which mitt romney you want to answer the question. the one from eight years ago or the one now because have i completely changed my own position on it. thank you. i appreciate you as always. >>> coming next, bibi and the bomb. i will take on the big israel/iran crisis after the break. chances are, you're not made of money, so don't overpay for motorcycle insurance. geico, see how much you could save. and get outstanding deals with the travelocity fall hotel sale. you can save up to 40% on select hotels. so book your hotel now and save up to 40%. hurry, offer ends soon. book now at travelocity. >> announcer: meet tom, a proud dad whose online friends all "like" the photos he's posting. oscar likes tom's photos, but he loves the access to tom's personal information. oscar's an identity thief who used tom's personal info to buy new teeth and a new car, and stu
're not particularly exciting. i'm not sure this is going to be great television. and i think jim lehrer will keep it even keel as far as the performance itself. >> you prepared president bush. how tough is it to be sitting with the president of the united states and telling him, no, sir, you're doing this wrong. let's try it again. is it harder to prepare a president? >> well, a person that needs a team that's capable of doing that. and a good opponent which i think he has here. john kerry as his debate, you know, preparation opponent here, that can school him in these things. that i think is important and kerry's quite good. we saw that in 2004. he did quite well in all three of those debates but it should be sobering to romney that kerry did well in those debates but it was not decisive in the election. >> a challenger wins just by being on the stage with an incumbent president, but you have to be ronald reagan and do a there you go again and make something of that in the ensuing campaign and also outside events, obviously, iran, the hostage situation was fatally damaging to jimmy carter. but -
for a nonpolitician goes to pbs's jim lehrer. this year will be his 11th appearance as a moderator of a presidential debate. barack obama, assuming we go through all three debates will tie bush for that record six.

weeks on that, chris. i think every debate moderator starting with jim lehrer tomorrow night is going to demand specifics in the way chris wallace tried to do last week on fox. and i also think that the numbers are emblematic of values in this case. people want to know about mitt romney. they're undecided. i disagree with chuck a little bit. i think people are prepared to blame the president enough to dismiss him if, as chuck says, they are secure about romney. it's that last piece that romney hasn't done, and forcing him to discuss the details of his tax plan is not a way necessarily to win those undecided voters at this point because i doubt that many of them like the idea of a big tax cut for millionaires. >> what do you think, chuck, of george wills' column where he says america will advance when it learns how to fire a black president, an african-american president. we haven't advanced that far. what do you make of this comment in his column today? like the orioles fired frank robinson. >> i have talked to a lot of republicans who believe that they do believe that there is a high
presented this idea to jim lehrer. i was sure he was searching for a polite way of saying that is absolutely ridiculous that would never happen. when he finally spoke, he said, i've been sitting up there waiting for that to happen for years. but mitt romney won't propose dropping the rules, because mitt romney is a candidate with a lot to hide. mitt romney is still hiding his tax returns and mitt romney is still hiding what he wants to do to your tax returns. the deductions on your tax returns. a candidate with as much to hide as mitt romney needs to hide, needs to hide behind the rules. the rules that strictly limit the speaking times of each candidate. but mitt romney will have a two-minute final statement, just like alan alda did in the west wing presidential debate. every word alan alda said in his final statement is something that mitt romney could say tomorrow night. he could put the best possible face on republicanism in that final two minutes. it could be done. but mitt romney won't do that. because his staff is busy coming up with zingers to aim at the president. team romney would b
in this process including jim lehrer to try to make the last 40 days better than what we've seen so far. the country deserves better and these candidates are better than their campaigns in terms of trying to actually tell the truth about the challenges we face. >> thank you to emmy darling mark halperin for leaving us less depressed and less confused than when we started the hour. thanks for your time, mark. >> thanks, alex. >> coming up, not so great expectations, both campaigns try to lower the bar ahead of tonight's debate we will try to sneak a peek inside the playbook. smoke screen and strategy with the obama campaign's ben labolt, just ahead. time for the entrepreneur of the week. andrew is the fourth generation of rosenwach tanks. find his family's wooden water tanks on hundreds of new york city rooftops. these tanks are shaped by hand with half century old tools. he says you don't throw out what works. you just build upon it. watch your business this sunday morning at 7:30 on msnbc. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare d
coverage of the first presidential debate out in denver, moderated by my friend jim lehrer, and we'll see you here on "face the nation" next week.
. it will be moderated by jim lehrer, host of pbs's "newshour." they'll have 15 minutes. ask a question, two minutes to respond. jake tapper pointed out on "world news." the president a little loquacious. one of his responses to jake was five minutes. got to cut that down a little bit. >> the media, we are guilty of this. we cover the horse race. we cover -- the one-liners or awkward moments. >> zingers. >> people watch -- i hope millions tune in to watch, they pay attention to the substance, how the two men differ in policies as opposed to who looked nervous, who had a little bit of sweat, who gave the quirky one-liner. >> check on the watch. >> yeah, hopefully people focus on the stuff that matters. we'll see. we'll see. >>> in pennsylvania big day today, there will be a vote on the voter i.d. law. it could still be appeared to the state supreme court here. we have seen that play out in different states around the country. virginia, ohio. so as just a few weeks out starting to see some of the judges take action one way or the other. how it is going to turn out. pennsylvania pay attention to that t
topics with jim lehrer. jim lehrer is such a mild mannered guy, that i think he'll try to keep the tone of the debate civil. i think that will also -- i think that will also affect what we see and hear tonight. >> we shall see. jim acosta, jim, thanks for me there in denver. and we showed you mitt romney, that clip and that pretty contentious debate from late last year. for the president, though, you have to reach back to 2008 to get a hint of his debate demeanor. check this out with me. first, with hillary clinton at the time obama's rival for the democratic nomination for president. >> set of assertions made by senator clinton as well as her husband that are not factually accurate. and -- >> you like to pretend like the war started in 2007. you talk about the surge, the war started in 2003. and the -- and at the time, when the war started, you said it was going to be quick and easy you said you knew where the weapons of mass destruction were, you were wrong. >> so that was a little taste for you on how the president goes into attack mode. jessica yellin, chief white house corresponden
one minute >> schieffer: public television's jim lehrer is the dean of debate moderators. he's been at it for 24 years. he's put more questions to more candidates than any of us. >> i've always thought that the vote for the presidency was different than any other vote we cast. the presidency, it seems to me, comes down to who do we feel most comfortable with in times of crisis. >> exactly right. bob gates, the former defense secretary, he said temperament. there's such a thing as presidential temperament. you can smell it. you can feel it. it's there. and some people have it. some people don't. >> schieffer: considering the importance we place on them, it's hard to believe that presidential debates are fairly new to american politics. >> the candidates need to no introduction. the republican candidate vice president richard m. nixon and the democratic candidate senator john f. kennedy >> reporter: they began just 52 years ago on september 26, 1960. >> i think mr. nixon is an effective leader of his party. i hope he would grant me the same >> schieffer: some people who listened to it
what it is he wants to say regardless of what the president says or what jim lehrer says. megyn: sometimes with these presidential candidates, and it happens for a lot of republicans, they get themselves in trouble. it's not even the moderator, and we saw that with mitt romney, too, chris, when he made his now-infamous remark about the bet he wanted to have with governor perry. again, watch. >> i'm just saying, you were for individual mandates, my friend. >> you know what? you've raised that before, rick, and you're -- >> it was true then. >> no, no. [laughter] >> it's true now. >> rick, i'll tell you what -- [laughter] $10,000? [applause] $10,000 bet? >> i'm not in the betting business, but -- >> oh, okay. >> and folks thought that made him look out of touch. everybody knows mitt romney's a rich guy, but they can be their own worst enemies. >> absolutely. debates aren't going to be super consequential barring one of two things; a massive gaffe or a total out of the park line. those are the only two things that are going to make the debate worthwhile, especially with these two g
minutes and then there is a rebuttal. megyn: jim lehrer of pbs will be moderating. they devote the rest of the 15-minute block to a discussion. so hopefully there will be a chance to press the candidates for followup, or real answers if they try to dodge. because you know and our viewers know having watched 25 presidential debates during the primaries, they all do it. they dodge. they hear this is a question on jobs. what's my policy on jobs, this what is i'm going to say without necessarily answering the question asked. hopefully the mat, the discussion after the initial response will give us a chance to hear real answers. having studies up on these debates it seems like the need many gets moved not so much by these soaring rhetorical moment but by a gafer that one of them may have or by one moment of connection that they may have with the viewers at home. ronald reagan, there you go again. bill: i think you make a great point on that. what you are saying is it's built in a format that will help encourage robust exchanges that would alloy the other to challenge the other one. megyn: we
's a clock and jim lehrer you hope will do just that. once they stop it, they can say whatever they want to. he can ask whatever questions and they can answer however they want to. aside from the fact that the obama people are trying to make sure that mr. obama speaks in shorter sound bites. they're also trying to make sure he doesn't look like he's lecturing. mitt romney will try to get punches off. john sununu said you'll see combativeness, but at the same time, you don't want mitt romney to appear too mean to the president. >> gretchen: the american people just want to hear as many answers as possible. so i do hope they have these time limits and that the candidates are forced to say what they mean and what they think in a short period of time. is it that tough? the american people have so many unanswered questions, especially the people who have not made up their mind about who they'll vote for. so if they're going to invest 90 minutes in watching this debate tonight, they want to hear a lot of answers. tomorrow night. so they want to be able -- we're talk being it so much, it feels lik
apart from each other. gregg: it's pretty close. jenna: and jim lehrer in that chair -- i don't know if that's him with his back to us, it could be. the university of denver, a huge situation for the city being that there's going to be a lot of traffic and a lot of activity. but in the meantime, this is a very important debate that kicks off a series of presidential debate, the first time these two men will face each other on the stage tomorrow night. gregg: right. a fox news alert, two u.s. border patrol agents are shot, one of them is dead near a remote drug smuggling route in southern arizona, and now that area -- as we speak -- flooded with agents on horseback and choppers in the air in the manhunt for the killer or killers. all of this taking place very close to a border station that was renamed in honor of agent brian terry whose murder was linked to the botched gun-running operation known as fast and furious. william la jeunesse joins us live from los angeles. william, what are you learning about this shooting? >> reporter: well, gregg, as you said, you've got deputies and age
